Thankful Thursday

"Rejoice always' pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for
this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." I Thessalonians 5: 16-18

I love Thankful Thursday and am grateful to Iris who hosts it every week. I believe when my heart is filled with gratitude it is easier to praise, easier to trust, and easier to
experience peace and joy.

1. I am thankful for my Bible Study group. This group of women encourages me, prays
with and for me, and enriches my life with their love and wisdom.

2. I am thankful that my husband and I can take our morning walks together. It is a
a joy to be able to share something I enjoy so much with him. It's a great time
talk and laugh together. When he was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes nearly 40
years ago, the doctor told him he would probably not live past the age of 45 ( a
rather cruel thing to say in my opinion). He will celebrate his 59th birthday in
June!! God is good. He is doing very well.

3. I am thankful for grandchildren whose eyes light up when they see you arriving for
a visit and greet you as though you were the most important people on earth.

4. I am thankful for a Heavenly Father who took a tragedy and turned it into bless-
ing. Our speaker at Bible Study yesterday spoke about the tragic death of her
baby girl and how the Lord worked through that to bring about something very good
indeed. It encourages me to know that He can and will do that for each one of us.

5. I am thankful for God's abundant provision in my life. He has given me blessing
upon blessing. In my worst moments, He never turns away from me. His love and
forgiveness and lavish grace draw me back - over and over again. Thank You

I am behind on visiting and commenting. One day off, and I seem to miss so much. I'm off to visit my Mom and Dad this afternoon. Please be patient with me. I'll try to visit this evening while my hubby watches the Sweet Sixteen. It's a balancing act. I'm just not going to get those few extras hours I long for in my day, so I'm trying to squeeze it all in. I care so much about each one of you. Have a great day.

I always love reading your Thankful Thursday list...makes me think of what I have to be thankful for also:-) I agree with you, I don't like it at all when doctors tell someone they won't live past a certain age...glad your hubby has proven him wrong!! xox

I agree with you that is was rather cruel to tell your husband he would only live until a certain age. But our God is much bigger and the best physician :). Wonderful that you are going for walks together. I think my Sweetheart and I should start to. I am glad that you are not that far away from your grandkids :)

A supportive Bible study group is awesome to have.
What can I say about God? I am just so thankful that He thought me worthy enough to be included in His family.

Thank you for sharing your thankfulness with us this week.

Blessings to you and yours.

So many wonderful things to be thankful for! I don't know why doctors tell patients things like that but I'm so glad your husband proved him wrong!
I love my morning walks with my husband and wish we could take them more often!

Thanks for sharing your list!
